In Georgia is a place called Tobacco Road, where the Lester family resides. The family patriarch Jeeter (Charley Grapewin) lives with his wife Ada (Elizabeth Patterson), his son Dude (William Tracy), and his single daughter Ellie May (Gene Tierney), but the Lesters are doomed to lose their land because the bank decides to take it over for more suitable farming. However, the banker (Grant Mitchell) is convinced by a friend in Capt. Tim Harmon (Dana Andrews) - whose father had kept after the Lesters to grow crops - to potentially lease the land to Jeeter for $100 a year, provided he can get a loan. He plans to get a loan from the widow Sister Bessie Rice (Marjorie Rambeau), who just received $800 from the life insurance company. However, Bessie decides to marry Dude and uses the money to buy a new car for Dude. Jeeter plans to find a way to get the money and also marry off Ellie May. His attempt at trying to sell Dude's car fails miserably, and it seems as though they will be forced to live in the poorhouse. It is Harmon who decides to give the Lesters a chance, lending them a stake for six months to try and grow a suitable crop, complete with $10 to get started.
